GARDENING. 

T7V the beginning of the 
•* month sow early peas. 
Prune all sorts of fruit- 
trees, and if any are in- 
fested with insects wash 
them with soap-suds and 
four of sulphur and 
tobacco liquor. Salads, 
carrots, and kidney beans 
are to be sown on slight 
hot-beds. Plant dried 
tubers and bulbs of bor- 
dered flowers, if not done 
in autumn. Lay edging 
in fine weather. Sow 
mignonette, stocks, &=c, 
in pots. Soiv sweet peas 
and a few hardy annuals 
on a warm border. 

EATON HALL. 
The palace of the Duke 
of Westminster at Eaton, 
in the neighbourhood of 
Chester, is probably the 
largest, and undoubtedly 
is by far the most costly 
private residence in Eng- 
land. The drive through 
the park to Eaton Hall is 
fully three miles in length. 
The present Hall is the 
fourth which has been 
built upon the site. The 
exterior at first rather 
conveys the impression of 
a colossal modem hotel, 
but the design gradually 
grows upon one. The 
gardens and conserva- 
tories are on a scale com- 
mensurate with the Hall.

GARDENING, 

JN the beginning and 
■L end of the month sow 
beans and peas ; sazioys 
in the last week. Straw- 
berries should be planted 
about the end of the 
month. Transplant for 
the first crop a few of the 
peas sown in November 
to the bottom of a south 
wall. Prune apricots, 
peaches, nectarines, and 
plums before the buds are 
much swelled. Prune 
apples, pears, cherries, 
gooseberries, currants, 
and raspberries before 
the close of the month. 
In favourable weather 
plant dried roots. 

LOWTHER CASTLE. 
Lowther Castle, the 
seat of the Earl of Lons- 
dale, is situated in a noble 
park of six hundred acres 
on the east side of the 
woody vale of Lowther, 
not far from Penrith. It 
was erected upon the site 
of the old hall, which had 
been almost totally de- 
stroyed by fire as far 
back as the year 1726. 
The light-coloured stone 
of which it is built is in 
pleasing contrast with 
the vivid green of the 
park and woods.

ENDSLEIGH. 

Endsleigh, the Devon- 
shirs seat of the Duke of 
Bedford, well deserves a 
visit from lovers of the 
picturesque for the sake 
of its grounds and the 
beauty of its site. It is 
situated above the Tamar, 
near Milton Abbot, about 
six miles from Tavistock. 
The private roads run for 
many miles through woods 
on both sides of the river, 
which winds most caprici- 
ously, flowing a long way 
to the east and then as 
far to the west and nearly 
encircling the hills which 
oppose it.

vale of Belvoir and the 
adjoining country as far 
as Lincoln, including 
twenty-two of the Duke 
of Rutland's manors. The 
interior is sumptuously 
furnished, and contains a 
valuable collection of 
paintings.

COMPTON WINVATE. 
The fine old mansion of 
Compton Winyate, a seat 
of the Marquis of North- 
ampton, is very snugly- 
situated in one of the 
little Cotswold valleys — 
so snugly indeed that 
Camden speaks of it as 
Compton in the Hole. 
The mansion, an irregular 
old-fashioned building, in 
its palmy days contained 
eighty-one rooms. Here 
Charles I. slept the night 
before Edgehill. Here 
was born Compton , Bishop 
of London, who held the 
see during the time that 
Christopher Wren's work 
was going on at St. Paul's. .

GARDENING. 

77V rt« beginning and 
end of the month 
sow "winter and spring 
spinach. A few coleworts 
may still be planted. 
Begin to ea-rth zip first- 
planted celery and leeks. 
Savoys and cabbages, 
which are particularly 
subject to the attacks of 
caterpillars, should be 
sprinkled with lime on 
dewy mornings. Net up 
in dry weather gooseberry 
and curra7it bushes to 
preserve the fruit till late 
in the autumn. Preserve 
the ripening fruit on the 
•walls from insects, and 
destroy wasps' nests. 



HATFIELD HOUSE. 
Hatfield House, the 
stately seat of the Mar- 
quis of Salisbury, is situ- 
ated about eighteen miles 
from King's Cross. We 
must go back to the days 
of the sixteenth century 
in order to find Hatfield 
at the proudest moments 
of its history, for from the 
time of its becoming one 
of the Tudor palaces down 
to the close of Queen 
Elizabeth's reign it was 
frequently connected with 
incidents of note in our 
national records.

houses in the neighbour- 
hood of Henley - on - 
Thames is Greenlands, 
the seat of the late Rf.

is pleasantly placed, and 
is a familiar object to all 
who visit what has been 
described as the Mecca 
of the row ng man, and 
one of the most favourite 
places of pilgrimage for 
anglers; a place, too, J 
which is a good one to : 
stay at for the tourist j 
who takes no interest 
either in oars or rods.

GARDENING. 

77V the first week sow 
small salads and 
radishes, and in the last 
week mazagan beans 
and early frame peas. 
Should the winter prove 
mild, they will be some- 
what earlier than those 
soivn next month, or in 
January. Dig up and 
store carrots and pota- 
toes. Parsnips may be 
left in the ground till 
next month. Transplant 
fruit-trees. Store and 
lay up very carefully 
during the month all 
sorts of apples and pears, 
A part of them may b e 
placed in a close cellar . 

INGESTRE HALL. 
The original Ingestre 
Hall was a noble Jacobean 
pile familiar to all who 
were interested in the 
family seats and archi- 
tectural beauties of Old 
England. In 1882 it met 
with a fate which has 
overtaken many another 
old mansion, and was 
totally destroyed by an 
accidental fire. The 
modern mansion is situ- 
ated in a magnificent park 
partly bounded by the 
Trent river, and a good 
idea of its imposing di- 
mensions and harmonious 
proportions is to be ob- 
tained from our engraving.

GARDENING, 

JN the second week sow 
■* early frame fie as and 
mazagan beans for an 
early crof>. Take up 
endive, late cauliflower, 
early broccoli, and let- 
tuces, and lay them in 
an open shed, or in old 
cucicmber or melon fits, 
which will protect them 
from frost, and afford a 
supply during winter. 
In fine weathet — and the 
earlier in the month the 
better — plant all sorts of 
fruit-trees. When the 
weather permits, carry on 
the work of pruning and 
nailing. 

PENRHYN CASTLE. 
A favourite excursion 
from Bangor taken by 
many tourists in that in- 
teresting neighbourhood 
is one to Penrhyn Castle, 
the seat of Baron Penrhyn. 
The Castle is a fine 
modern mansion built in 
the old style, and is well 
worth a visit. One of the 
sights of the place is the 
old Hirlas Horn, which 
belonged to Sir Rees 
Griffith, who was sheriff 
of Carnarvon in 15^6. 
About half a mile from 
the Castle is the highly 
picturesque model village 
of Llandegai.

' 'GARDENING. 

CV9 W a few beans and 
*~-* peas. Turn -up the 
ground thoroughly for 
exposure to the frost and 
snow. In mild weather 
plant all sorts of fruit- 
trees. Mulch over the 
roots of tender trees, 
such as are often so far 
affected by frost as to be 
barren in the coining 
year. Inspect the fruit 
in the store-room at fre- 
quent intervals, and re- 
move whatever is found 
to be in a state of decay. 
Collect dead leaves and 
rubbish. Old shrubberies 
should be cleared, top- 
dressed, and dug. 

WITLEY COURT. 
Our engraving represents 
Witley Court, the Wor- 
cestershire seat of Lord 
Dudley. The owner of 
this imposing residence 
is the largest landowner 
in the county of Wor- 
cester, holding no fewer 
than 14,699 acres. There 
was a Dudley Castle in 
Worcestershire which 
continued habitable till 
1750, when it was burned 
to the ground. Tradition 
ascribes the fire to a set 
■of coiners, to whom the 
Castle served as a sort of 
retreat or concealment.

MARRIED WOMEN'S PROPERTY ACT. 

The wages and earnings of any married woman ac- 
quired in any employment or trade carried on separately 
from her husband shall be deemed to be property held 
and settled to her separate use independent of husband. 
Any money a married woman may acquire by the exer- 
cise of any literary, artistic, or scientific skill, is also her 
own separate property. Any monetary or other invest- 
ments a married woman may make as the result of her 
own exertions are her own property absolutely. 

LANDLORD AND TENANT. 

A yearly tenant must take care that he gives notice to 
quit his premises half a year before the time of the ex- 
piration of the current year of his tenancy. If, by agree- 
n ent, a quarter's lotice is to be suffic'ent, <uch notice 
must always expire with the tenancy, if that is vearh/. 
If a landlord neglects to repair the premises according to 
his covenant, the tenant may maintain an action against 
him ; but such neglect does not absolve the tenant from 
payment of the rent. A landlord can legally dispose of 
goods taken under a distress for rent, by appraisement, 
without putting them up to auction. A landlord may not 
take possession of the goods of his tenant's lodgers. 



MAKING A WILL. 



A form in which a will may he commenced is. "This 
is the last will of Thomas Anderson, Myrtle Cottage, 
Paradise Row, Dorking, in the county of Surrey." 

A fter disposing of the property the will may be ended 
thus: — "And I revoke all former wills and codicils. 
Dated the 19th December, 1893." 

In executing a will the testator should sign his name 
at the foot or end of the will, in presence of two witnesses, 
who will immediately sign their names in his and in each 
other's presence. A person who has been left a legacy 
or share of residue in the will, or whose wife or husband 
has been left a legacy, should not be an attesting witness. 
Their attestation would be g.ood, but they would forfeit 
the legacy. It is better that a person named as executor 
should not be a witness. Husband and wife may both be 
witnesses, provided neither is a legatee. If a solicitor be 
appointed executor, it is lawful to direct that his ordinary 
fees and charges shall be paid ; but in this case he (as an 
interested party) must not be a witness to the will. 

But the best advice that can be given to anyone 
desirous of making a will, is to put the matter into the 
hands of the most respectable lawyer he can discover, 
and trust to his professional skill. Amateur will- 
making, as a rule, is a mistake.
